What Our Clients Are Saying
I recently visited Dr. Gerard's office after I found one of our neighborhood cats was sick. He and Lois are amazing. He was knowledgeable, empathetic, and helped me put together a plan to get this sweet cat healthy. Lois helped facilitate the whole process and even called at 8pm one night to check in after we had another cat neutered. What an amazing team! We will definitely be staying with this outstanding practice. Thank you!
Fantastic Vet. Dr. Gerard really cares about your pet. What I also appreciate is that he looks things up and he thinks about your pet issues even when you are not there. Best Vet in Sumter! I would absolutely recommend!
Dr. Gerard is awesome! We ended up having an unplanned pregnancy with one of our Guinea Pigs. Dr. Gerard answered all of our questions and consulted with other vets when needed. He was caring with Lucy and made us feel better about her well-being. We are lucky to have Dr. Gerard in Sumter.
